Intro to Programming builds self-directed learning skills
By Jacob Jasper
Coding has become a large part of American culture, especially in the heart of Silicon Valley. Denali students have the chance to build these skills in the Intro to Programming Expeditions course. The course gives students the chance to learn the basics of programming so they can move on to more advanced concepts in later years.
“My favorite part is how how self-directed it is. So you have to look at the resources yourself,” Denali freshman Ella Chen said.
Other students agreed that the freedom they were given was a plus. “I don’t know, just the independence you get. Like you can do whatever you want,” Denali freshman Chase Santaga said about his favorite part of the course.
